My day has begun badly. I have let myself down really badly. But that is just part of the deal. The good part is, it does not change my life in any tangible way. But ..... I am still disappointed. Time to cheer myself up. What could be better than going to the farm? I want to transfer a tree growing in my balcony - yes, you heard right - a tree. I have been asking the caretaker in the building to take it down and put it in the common garden. He's been giving me excuses, but done nothing about it. It's months now. What do I do? Can't bring myself to throw the tree out to die. The farmer on my Farmizen farm agrees to take it. I get the Woman Friday to take down the pot from the grill. "Akka", she exclaims! "Look it has got one fruit!" I rush to look. I have wondered all along what tree it is. Turns out it is a fig tree. Yes, a fig in my balcony garden!!! So I put it in an auto-rickshaw and rush to the farm. There I ensure the tree is securely lodged on terra firma where I pray it will thrive. It has at last found a 'forever home'. May it bear a lot of fruit and provide shade and succour to those working on and visiting the farm for a long time to come. While on the farm I see a family who has come to harvest their crops. There is a little guy - maybe 4 or 5 years old. "What's your name?" asks he farmer. The little fella keeps quiet. "Why don't you tell him?" asks his father. "Tell me your name" repeats the father. The fella turns to the father and asks "Who am I?" My jaw drops. Am sure the kid does not even know what he has asked. It's amusing. A deeply philosophical question out of the mouth of a kiddo. Treat myself to a glass of fresh sugarcane juice on the way back. Nothing in life is constant. When one is down in the dumps, there is only one way out - back out into the sunshine. Came back with a banana inflorescence, raw bananas, moringa leaves, cucumbers, tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, capsicum, cow peas and 3 papayas. What a wonderful day this has been!
